A sample of client successes in representative case matters:
Worked closely with employer to meet strategic business concerns in minimizing immigration program risk through the movement of “mission critical” employees from temporary work visas to green card status in under 2 years.
Provided advice and guidance to company HR team in the establishment of a successful PERM labor certification program, including compliance best practices so that even cases subjected to a detailed audit process have the best possible chance of success under the applicable law. These practices included working closely with the employer to confirm objective minimum requirements, providing the HR team with detailed step-by-step instructions and guidance in support of the required recruitment and resume review process, and quickly moving to file applications as soon as possible.
Assisted aspiring entrepreneur in the development of a personalized immigration strategy to expedite the lawful permanent residence process, which resulted in his obtaining a green card in less than one year. This allowed him to move on with the next stage of his career, which has included the successful launch of a start up based on a business plan originally developed in graduate school.
Partnered with corporate HR team to outline all possible immigration options to support their presentation to the company’s executive team. This allowed the executive team to make an informed business decision that took account of the program’s full value. Leadership was then able to choose a level of sponsorship support appropriate to the business needs of the organization, that balanced the company’s interest in short- and long-term employee retention, budget planning, as well as legal risk mitigation and compliance concerns.

Worked closely with the client in taking additional proactive steps to update and improve compliance best practices in order to minimize the potential of any future audit challenge.
Represented applicant for naturalization in a process that was ultimately successful in overcoming government challenges based on the amount of time he had spent in the U.S., a minor violation of the law that had occurred as a college student, and violation of on administrative law registration requirement. This outcome was a result of spending the time required to complete an in-depth exploration of all case specific circumstances, including the applicant’s background and accomplishments, and how those details supported the exercise of discretion in the applicant’s favor. Far beyond “filling out the form,” these kinds of cases often involve the completion of a detailed timeline, a gathering of substantial supporting documentation, and contingency planning.
Served as a strategic partner in providing insightful services to guide organizations through complex restructuring and reorganization scenarios, including the immigration consequences of mergers, acquisitions, corporate spin-offs, and related corporate structural changes.
